Re: Saw red WK2 SRT8 in person, no test drive (long review)

ok...its the only username you use? f16harm?

I have seen the threads at the red site...Im a member there. Its all good bro...i appreciate your opinion...but others are gonna post theirs too and sometimes it may be in contrary to your own. IMO...its not maroon and I posted pics to show my opinion...thats all. The throne and know it all comments was VERY uncalled for. I do this site for FREE and I do the best I can to walk the line between letting members have their freedoms and opinions. Sometimes...im not gonna lie....its hard. I do the best I can to keep it on a level playing field for all members. Im not sure what you are looking for here? Do you just want everyone to agree with you?

Schleprock: I own it here, red site, a GTO forum, that's it.
It was f16hard: just created, comes from one of my email accounts, which originated from my college degree and occupation. There are twitter accounts, forums, etc. with both these names on them, not me.

What you just lectured to me is about is actually what I was trying to get across to YOU. For instance, on this color thing, for all intents and pursposes you're telling me, who has seen it and providing an opinon, that I'm full of shit and have no idea what I'm talking about and am dead wrong. Not sure if others who might see it are afraid to say it because you run the place, or just agree with you because you run the place, but IMO your comments and attitudes a lot are what you explained to me. IMO, that's not how Admins should run a respectable site. Part of the down side to running a site is having to be a bit more PC.

I'm done, and moving on from this. I am fine now if you are.

Re: Saw red WK2 SRT8 in person, no test drive (long review)

well....I do the best I can and Im sorry if that doesnt meet yours...or anyone elses needs. Obviously I am DOING something right with 2.5 miliion page views per month and over 30000 unique visitors per month and growing. The forum all the original members left had 1500 members and about 150 posts per day....

Maybe I should be like Bernie and go straight by the rules and not take human emotions into account...or that someone may have stress in their life or just having a bad day? Or maybe their dad is sick, in the hospital and they are stressed? Maybe I shouldnt take the human effect into account at all and just hand out infractions/warning/bans for every little rule that is broke here. Would that be good for you and the "others" that dont like what im doing here? Do you want everyone to walk that thin line? Its funny...anyone that "knows me" knows that they can come to me with any problem they have in life or with me personally...and hundreds of members here HAVE done that exact thing. They have enough repsect for what i do...to not post it in the open forums.....unlike some.

Re: Saw red WK2 SRT8 in person, no test drive (long review)

I think part of the problem here is defining color in this digital age. Photograph an object with different cameras, in different lighting, and transmit images with different devices, you end up with different colors, even when compared side by side. if you really want to see maroon, aka burgundy, aka wine, come and see my 2000 Grand Cherokee. The color is Sienna, and it's very yesterday. I'm hoping Deep Cherry Clear Coat is more today or tomorrow!

I don't know Scott, the Deep Cherry Red is about as close to maroon as you can possibly get on Chryslers color list (see attached). Quite frankly, should have use Flame Red or Redline IMO.

I disagree. I saw one at a dealer last Thursday before they prepped it or did anything to it. Outside in sunlight. It was a deep red, not maroon or wine. It was cherry red, just as the color states.

I know, I am looking at it, but it looks like that color is missing (it seays deep molten red, but all I see is a blank black space)
